The Eat Art Truck & Ears in the Inner West


Last night The Eat Art  Truck got a facelift right here in the Inner West. Talented local artist Ears, put his unmistakeable characters and style on the side of the truck for all of Sydney to see.

The truck was parked opposite the Seymour Centre where a crowd of people watched Ears at work while they got to feast on the Eat Art Truck delights created by former Tetsuyas sous chef Stuart McGill and former Quay sous chef Brenton Balicki.

I’ve eaten from the Eat Art Truck once before, at the Vivid Light Festival in Sydney. When truck pulled up in front of Customs House, the massive Phibs artwork on the side of the truck grabbed my attention. Last night, while watching Ears work his artisitc magic I enjoyed the delicious pulled pork roll on a sweet bun with coleslaw and hot sauce… sooo good!

The great news is the artwork on the side of the truck will be changed each month so there will be more chances to see artists at work. Rumour has it that panels from each of the artworks created will be auctioned off at the end of the year and the proceeds will go to charity. Phibs was the first, now Ears… I wonder who will be next ?

The Eat Art Truck team are keen to get involved in community events in the Inner West. Let me know if you think you have an event they will be interested in and I will pass the suggestions on to them, or just contact them through their facebook page. I think it would be amazing if they could secure a location for the next painting session on the truck somewhere in the centre of Newtown where loads more people can get the opportunity to see art in the making while eating their delicious food. Get your thinking caps on Inner Westies, we need to find a location that suits!

If you didn’t get a chance to see the artwork or taste the food last night, the Eat Art Truck is in the Inner West today as well. They are at the City Farm Community Day at Sydney Park (King Street entrance) between 10-2pm, then heading back to the Seymour Centre from 6-8pm. Enjoy!
